Chiarastella


Published 2008


Animation made by 22 8y old pupils in an Italian Elementary School, during Music and Art classes.
The production lasted an entire school year.

Chiarastella (bright star) is an Italian tradition. Few days before Christmas the children go singing Christmas carols to the neighbours, with a home made lantern, often shaped like a star. The better they sing the more money they receive.
In this little story the kids sing the traditional carol of the Venice region, in Venetian dialect.
Since the introduction of English in the Elementary curriculum (90s) the Chiarastella has gradually being replaced by Halloween's Trick'O'Treat.

Congratulations on a very funny and beautiful animation. I was very impressed with the drawings and particularly liked the way the animation was very smooth. Thanks for sharing it, and adding English subtitles too!
